In 2002 I started again participating in the SETI@Home project. The website SETIATHOME.BERKELEY.EDU, managed by the University of California, USA, states the following:

The science of SETI@home

SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is a scientific area whose goal is to detect intelligent life outside Earth. One approach, known as radio SETI, uses radio telescopes to listen for narrow-bandwidth radio signals from space. Such signals are not known to occur naturally, so a detection would provide evidence of extraterrestrial technology.

Radio telescope signals consist primarily of noise (from celestial sources and the receiver's electronics) and man-made signals such as TV stations, radar, and satellites. Modern radio SETI projects analyze the data digitally. More computing power enables searches to cover greater frequency ranges with more sensitivity. Radio SETI, therefore, has an insatiable appetite for computing power.

Previous radio SETI projects have used special-purpose supercomputers, located at the telescope, to do the bulk of the data analysis. In 1995, David Gedye proposed doing radio SETI using a virtual supercomputer composed of large numbers of Internet-connected computers, and he organized the SETI@home project to explore this idea. SETI@home was originally launched in May 1999.

All you basically have to do is, download the new BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) client, install it on your computer and you are go. First, however you should create an account on the website. Click here to create an account for SETI@Home.

PLEASE NOTE THAT RECENTLY THE WAY WORKUNITS ARE BEING PROCESSED HAS BEEN CHANGED. INSTEAD OF THE SETI CLASSIC CLIENT AND VARIOUS OTHER DERIVATES SETI@HOME IS NOW BEING PROCESSED USING THE "BOINC" CLIENT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE EXPRESSED THEIR UNHAPPINESS ABOUT THAT, HOWEVER, THIS IS ABOUT RESEARCH AND THE OFFICIAL KICKCHAT SETI TEAM WILL FULLY SUPPORT THE INEVITABLE CHANGE OVER TO BOINC.

Now Kickchat.com has created its own Team you can join to compare your stats and identify yourself to the community you belong. Basically this is not a race. Sure it is a chalenge to compare how many workunits and credits one has completed, however, mainly SETI@Home is about the scientific research.

If you run BOINC or wish to be part of our team, please click here to join The Official Kickchat SETI Team.



For questions please send an Email either to kickchat.seti.team@kickchat.com or directly to The Official Kickchat Seti Team.
